Up Front Action Cards (2nd Edition)
Regular price: $22.99
Bundle price:
 $20.99
Format:
 Card(s)

Up Front is a card-based wargame designed by Courtney F. Allen and orignally published by Avalon Hill in 1983.

This award winning game, referred to as the Squad Leader card game, provides an innovative game design for simulating squad level skirmishes. Its use of terrain cards in lieu of a board; its effective simulation of the Fog of War and of troop responsiveness (or lack thereof) to orders amid combat are all often cited innovative features. It is a non-CCG design.

Up Front is quite well known in wargame circles, but for those looking for more information and reviews of this game, we recommed these sites:

I'm interested in getting some of the deck boxes listed in the Up Front video, but can't find them on the website. Will they hold the action deck cards if they are sleeved?

Hi Bill,

Try searching for deckbox, one word, that should get you there.

I don't believe you will be able to fit sleeved cards in them tho, they are sized for un-sleeved cards.

The printed counters are cut outs printed on premium cardstock, and we also provide a pdf download that you can print out on sticky paper and attach to the counter material of your choice. The counter sizes are 5/8" and 7/16" square.

They will be a separate purchase option, as it will include all of the Group and Weapons cards for the three nations, as well as cards that substitute for all of the other counters too. The bundle will have them included with a small price increase.

Hi Shawn,

We just did what we hope is the final electronic proofing before print proofing, hopefully in the next month or so they'll be ready, but it will depend on how the actual printed cards come out whether we have more work to do or not!

I am not sure if I'm missing something. I had purchased the Complete bundle, and after placing the smaller cards in their sheets I noticed that all countries had smaller cards for their weapons and a card for a sniper EXCEPT my Americans. Did I misplace (unlikely) or never get a set of smaller cards? What would I need to order to replace it?

Hi Glenn,

We haven't finished the weapon, Group or sniper cards for the Up Front nations yet, only for Banzai and Desert War, although there are some American weapon cards included in Banzai but not a full set. We hope to finish with the three original nation's cards very soon. If you ordered Banzai and didn't get the American weapons cards please contact our customer service folks. The cards should have been included in Banzai with the American personnel cards in the same size.

I have two weapons cards for US, only two.
Customer avatar
Steve S September 01, 2016 12:49 am UTC
WARGAME VAULT STAFF
Yes, those are the ones included with Banzai. The original Banzai counter sheet only has two American weapon counters, a pair of bolt-action rifles. Since we made the other weapon cards for Banzai we made two American cards that have those rifles, plus a BAR, 2 machine pistols, carbine, semi-auto rifle and an MMG. When we finish the counter-replacement cards for Up Front it will be a full set for all three countries in that set, plus cards that substitute for all the rest of the play counters as well.

I created, and "sold" to Avalon Hill, an eighth Nationality for _Up Front_, and was working on a ninth when Hasbro bought the company. The nationalities were for publication in _The General_ -- one was accepted and the other had been submitted for consideration -- and included history, graphics, chits, roster, and rules. I had done considerable work on several additional nationalities. Are these of interest to you? At this point I would at least like to see my guys get in "official" print.

Cameron.
We are working on a full set of counter-replacement cards to substitute for all of the counters, they should be available in the near future. We have already released those cards for the Banzai and Desert War expansions. When we release them for Up Front they will be included in the bundle as well as being available separately for those who have already purchased Up Front.

Just checking to see how soon these cards will be available. When they are available I will purchase them and Banzai and Desert War to save on the shipping to Canada.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
This title was added to our catalog on April 27, 2015.
